    It's not much of a debate. I think we're all pretty aware of how incredibly racist this country is. Daniel Snyder is only changing it now because it's hurting his wallet.

    White Americans take the land of a native people and attempt to commit genocide and then their descendants dress up as those people at sporting events. "This is America".

    Changing the name is good and all, but when are we gonna start giving the natives their land back?

    California has some of the most up Trump's butt Republicans in the country. They are not going to get this under control.

    There was a notable SCOTUS decision a few days ago where they ruled that about half the state of Oklahoma was native land.

    That was largely because Congress never bothered to come up with any legislation contradicting a prior treaty.

    That, and Gorsuch is NOT a fan of how the US government used to do stuff like give tribes copies of treaties written in a third language they didn't speak or read, took advantage of language drift (and translation drift) in order to change the meaning of treaties, and all the other shenanigans that were pulled. There is a reason he was endorsed by so many tribal organizations - despite his other leanings.

    Are there any examples of it being used as a racial slur? Has any Native American said that they were called a redskin as a pejorative?

    That doesn't actually change the reality on the ground one bit though. When are they going to start expropriating white owned land and assets and redistributing it to the tribes?

    The judge in the Roger Stone case has requested documents from WH regarding Stone's Commutation.

    No one has seen any official records of it yet, and it's unclear if it covers just the jail time or does it also cover supervised release (I guess that's like Probation) and fines imposed.
    It'd be great if Stone goes to prison because Trump is too lazy to do the paperwork.
